Lesson: Literacy

Class: Y4 Year: 2021 - 2022

At Starbooks this afternoon Year 4 enjoyed talking about the pictures in the wordless story 'FLOTSAM' by David Wiesner.  Flotsam is a book about a young boy who stumbles across a barnacle-encrusted underwater camera as he is collecting flotsam that has been washed ashore. 

We looked at the pictures to music and discussed what was happening in them.  Using a page of the story as inspiration of our artwork we created fish collages using recycled materials.  We use plastic bags, bottle tops and cotton buds - things that sometimes end up in our seas and oceans.
